Installation Instructions
1. Before You Begin Read these instructions from beginning to end before proceeding with installation. Maximum working temperature is 100F. Use a hand truck to transport the unit. To prevent accident or injury, do not hoist the unit over your shoulder. Do not lay the unit on its side. Wear safety glasses and work gloves. 2. Test Raw Water Test the customers raw water for hardness, iron, pH and/or any other element/ contaminant that could affect this systems performance. 3. Check the Water Pressure Use a pressure gauge to confirm that the water pressure does not exceed 100 psi. If the water pressure exceeds this limit, install a pressure regulator on the inlet pipe of the unit. The minimum pressure for a conditioner is 25 psi. 60 psi is the optimum operating pressure. 4. Locate a Site for the Unit There are two primary needs for a site: the main water source and a drain. Locate the conditioner as close to the main water source as possible, so that you do not miss any water outlets. If possible, bypass any outside faucets. The drain may be a floor drain, a sewer trap, utility sink, vent stack, dry well, etc., depending on local plumbing codes. Place the unit in the desired location on a level, smooth, clean surface. If located outdoors, protect the unit from direct sun or freezing temperatures, which can damage the unit.

5. Turn off the Water and Drain the Pipes Turn off the water at the meter or the pressure tank. Drain all pipes. Do not sweat pipes with water in them, steam will damage the plastic parts in the valve. To drain the plumbing system, open all faucets in the house including the toilets. This will allow air to enter the plumbing system. The water will drain out of the lowest faucet or outlet. 6. Bypass the Outside Faucets Install plumbing pipes to bypass outside faucets (if the customer requests). This may not be possible in a slab home, where the plumbing is buried in the foundation. If it is not possible, provide an untreated hose bib on the inlet pipe. 7. Connect the Plumbing to the Bypass Valve and Brine Tank Do not point the soldering torch directly at the system. The material will last many years, within normal operating temperatures, but will melt in a torch flame. To prevent hot water from backing up in the conditioner, avoid short connections of pipe between the conditioner and the hot water heater. If you can't avoid a short connection, move the equipment to another location. As a last resort, install a check valve. If this causes "water hammer", install a water hammer suppressor.

Connect the raw water pipe to the INLET pipe connection of the bypass valve. When looking at the front of the unit, the INLET is the pipe connection on the left side of the valve. Connect the treated water pipe to the OUTLET pipe connection of the bypass valve. When looking at the front of the unit, the OUTLET is the pipe connection on the right side of the valve.

9. Run the Remaining Hard Water from the Plumbing To flush out the pipes, turn on all the faucets in the house and flush the toilets (approximately two to three minutes per faucet). To empty the hot water heater of untreated water, run hot water in the bathtub until the water runs cold. 10. Test Hot and Cold Water Test hot and cold water for hardness. Older hot water heaters may have calcium deposits in them, which could affect your test results. If only hot water is treated, test the water at the drain valve (installed between the unit and the hot water tank). 11. Install Drain Line and Air Gap (air gap not included with unit) Connect the drain line to the drain outlet on the left side of the valve. This connection is a 1/2 " inch female pipe thread. To attach a drain line, a fitting is needed to connect from the female connection to the drain line. Note: This line operates under pressure, so it may be installed higher than the conditioner. Run this line to the air gap/drain.

If treating only hot water, install a drain valve between the conditioner tank and hot water heater, so that the water can be tested for hardness before entering the hot water heater (especially older tanks). 8. Turn on the Water and Test for Leaks Close all faucets that were opened in Step 5. Turn the water back on at the water meter or pressure tank. Check for leaks. If there is a leak, drain the plumbing again before soldering. Test to confirm that the unit is softening the water.

Note: A suitable air gap should be used between the end of the drain line and the drain to prevent possible back siphoning. The air gap should always be a minimum of two times the diameter of the drain line. Be sure to check local plumbing codes, area regulations may differ.

Important Control Information


Program Levels: To enter any of the program levels featured on the 2401S, the control must display the time of day and gallons remaining (Service Mode). The 2401S has four program levels available: 1. The Installers Level The Installers Level is for trained personnel only. To access this level, you must provide the five key sequence code located on page 8. Please refer to pages 8-12 for programming information. 2. The Manufacturers Level The Manufacturers Level is for trained personnel only. To access this level, you must provide the six key sequence code located on page 13. Please refer to pages 13-14 for programming information. 3. The End Users Level This level does not require a special code to access. Please refer to page 15 for programming information. 4. The Diagnostic Level To access this level, press and hold the up arrow for five seconds. Please refer to page 16 for information on the Diagnostic Level. Power On LED A green LED, near the keypad, is ON when power is applied to the control and the microprocessor is operating properly. Service Required If this message displays in the window of the control, a fault has occurred on the board (also know as a corrupt signal). In most cases, reprogramming the board will clear this message from the window. If the screen does not clear, other checks must be made to the switches, boards and parts.

Important Control Information (continued)


Blinking Digits or Message Digits or a message blinking at the rate of 0.5 seconds ON and 0.5 seconds OFF indicates that these digits can be changed/edited. A message flashing at a rate of 1 second ON and 1 second OFF cannot be changed. Pressing and releasing the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW can change the blinking digits or the message. The user can increase or decrease the values by using the two arrow keys. Real-Time Clock A real-time clock maintains the time of the day when line power is applied to the control. The time of day is maintained by a super capacitor for a minimum of 2 hours following the loss of line power. Corrupt Memory registers and records this error to non-volatile memory. Corrupt Real-Time Clock If line power is lost for an extended period, the super capacitor will lose its charge and the realtime clock will stop operating. When line power returns, the clock will blink, indicating that the clock needs to be set to the correct time. The clock will activate from 8:00 AM, until the clock is set to the correct time. After the time has been set, the colon flashes to indicate that the clock is operating properly. The corrupt memory registers and records this error to the nonvolatile memory. Non-Volatile Memory The computer board configuration parameters are saved in non-volatile (E2PROM) memory that has a minimum of 100,000-erase/writecycle capability. The non-volatile memory is used for storage of information. The storage of information will stay in memory in the event of a power outage. Example: The Hardness, Capacity or Volume settings are the types of settings stored in the non-volatile memory.

In the occurrence of a power outage, the nonvolatile memory will hold this important setting information. The time of day, however, will need to be reset if the power interruption has lasted longer than two hours. The non-volatile memory is not programmed to store the time of day and in most cases, the super capacitor will last only two hours. Corrupt Manufacturers Mode, Installers Mode and Diagnostic Mode Parameters This corrupt mode signifies that somehow the board received an incorrect signal and rejected that signal. The board is now put on notice that there was a mistake made. The corrupt memory will register and record the error to the nonvolatile memory. If any of the parameters, except Valve Type, Meter Type or Duplex Type become corrupt, the default for the corrupted parameter will also be saved in the non-volatile memory. The number of corruptions can be read in the Diagnostic Level. Measurement Units Both English-US and Metric units can be programmed into the control. When the manufacturer selects English-US units, the volume is displayed by GL (gallons) and the flow rate is indicated by GPM (gallons per minute). GL/d (gallons per day) indicates the average volume and the time is displayed in a 12 hour AM/PM format. When the manufacturer selects Metric units, the volume is displayed by L (liters) and the flow rate is indicated by L/m (liters per minute). The average volume is indicated by L/d (liters per day) and the time is displayed in a 24 hour format.

Flow Input (Meters) Standard Meter: The meter produces 108 pulses per one gallon of flow and 29 pulses per liter of flow. The maximum pulse rate is 54 per second, corresponding to a maximum flow rate of 30 GPM. Secondary Meter: The control can be programmed for a non-standard meter (this is a non Hall-effect type meter) and is called a volume/pulse setting on the control (100 gal/per pulse). Note: The factory selects a K factor for the meter. For English-US, the K factor defines the number of gallons per pulse. For Metric, the K factor defines the number of liters per pulse. The default setting is 100. Holiday Mode Regeneration is not allowed when the control is in the holiday mode. The word HOLIDAY will blink when scrolled to on the control board. After sixty seconds, the unit will enter the holiday mode. The only way the unit will exit the holiday mode is when a flow rate greater than 1.5 gallons per minute has been detected or if an immediate regeneration has been started. You may also manually scroll out of the holiday mode as the last way to exit. After exiting the holiday mode, the unit will go into an immediate regeneration. Override Counter If the override parameter is set to OFF, the days to override counter will not be used to initiate regeneration. The days to override counter is always used to initiate regeneration when No Meter has been selected. If days to override is programmed with a meter, the override will only initiate regeneration if the meter has not recorded enough water usage.

Regeneration Level When a regeneration in progress is aborted, the valve is cycled to the service position. If the aborted regeneration was initiated by the control (not manually initiated), the regeneration is restarted after a 60 second delay. Example: A power outage is an aborted regeneration. If a manual regeneration is aborted, there is no back up regeneration. Regeneration Once an immediate regeneration is requested, a complete regeneration must occur to clear the request. Once regeneration starts, it must finish or the board will not clear. If the regeneration is aborted and the request is not cleared, another immediate regeneration will occur. Manually walk (scroll) the control through a regeneration to clear the board. High-Speed Motor Operation in the Regeneration Mode High-speed motor operation is achieved while stepping the control through the regeneration cycle. Pressing the scroll button a second time, while in regeneration, activates the higher speed.

Start Up/System Check Instructions


1. Turn the main shutoff valve until it is just barely open (this will allow the unit to release the air trapped inside, without agitating the mineral, when you manually regenerate the system). 2. Verify that the control is in the service position. The control will display the time of day and gallons remaining. 3. Manually advance (scroll) the control to the regeneration position. The display will count down from 10 to 0. The first step will be backwash. Allow the water to flow from the drain until all the air has purged. After all the air has purged, open the main valve. 4. Advance (scroll) the control valve to the brine cycle. The system will draw water from the brine tank. Remove the brine line and check for suction. If no suction occurs, refer to the troubleshooting section on page 23. 5. Advance (scroll) the control to fill/rinse. Allow the system to fill the brine tank. 6. Use the scroll button to advance the control back to the service position. 7. The installation is now complete. Please refer to pages 8-15 for programming information.

IMPORTANT: SANITIZING WATER CONDITIONERS IS RECOMMENDED BY THE WATER QUALITY ASSOCIATION After the installation is complete, including setting the computer and putting water in the brine tank, the following procedure can be used to sanitize the water conditioner: Mix about a 3/4 cup of common (unscented) 5.25% household bleach with about 1 quart of water and pour this solution into the brine well. Note: Do not pour undiluted bleach into the water conditioner. Initiate a manual regeneration. The bleach solution will be drawn into the water conditioner during the regeneration process. When the regeneration process is complete, the water conditioner has been sanitized. Note: The unit may be sanitized with or without salt in the brine tank.

Brine Refill Flow Control Selection


Your system will come with one of the following flow controls: 0.25 GPM - A Each minute in the refill cycle is equal to 0.75 pounds of salt. 0.5 GPM - B Each minute in the refill cycle is equal to 1.5 pounds of salt. 1.0 GPM - D Each minute in the refill cycle is equal to 3.0 pounds of salt. To verify the size of your flow control, put (scroll) the unit into the refill cycle and measure the refill flow rate. Note: The fast rinse/brine refill cycle can only be set in increments of one minute. Note: One gallon of water will dissolve three pounds of salt. The amount of water in the tank will determine the amount of salt that the system will use during each regeneration. Note: The following flow control recommendations are based on general tank sizes.

Cycles of the System


1. SERVICE: Untreated water flows down through the resin bed and up through the riser tube; the water is conditioned when passing through the resin. The throughput is dependent on the maximum permissible pressure drop for the complete water softener and the maximum permissible specific load of the resin. 2. BACKWASH: Water flows down through the riser tube and up through the resin bed to drain; the resin bed is fully expanded and all foreign materials are thoroughly washed from the resin, allowing a good brine cycle to occur. 3. BRINE: Salt brine, drawn from the brine tank by the injector, slowly flows down through the resin bed and up through the riser tube to drain; the resin is being regenerated when the salt brine passes through the bed. The brine cycle is terminated when the air check seats in the brine valve. 4. SLOW RINSE: Slow rinse continues for the remainder of the brine cycle; the water slowly flows down through the resin bed and up through the riser tube to drain, slowly washing the brine from the resin tank. 5. FAST RINSE/BRINE REFILL: Water flows to the brine tank and at the same time down through the resin bed and up through the riser tube to drain, ensuring that all traces of brine are washed out and that the resin bed is compacted. The resin bed is now ready for the next service cycle.
